The Last: Naruto The Movie - Review [SnapThirty]

Frank Inglese writes:

It's quite tragic but nothing I can put down in writing could ever properly detail my confusing relationship with "Naruto". As a young man I used to love "Naruto" more than anything in the world. There was once I time when I would live, breath and eat the series. "Naruto" I actually hold in reverence, whether or not it is believed that I do thanks to the way I see it now is up to the person reading the review but I can assure you that I've never lived a day where I havn't thought about the rambunctious Ninja and his pals.

It was the first ever Anime I knowingly watched. A friend from school put me onto it and within a single episode I was captured by the charm of the "punky" main character. Watching the Anime than lead me to begin reading the Manga, reading the Manga than lead me onto playing the video games, and experiencing the franchise as a whole lead me onto the path of a career to do with Japanese Pop Culture so, as you can see, "Naruto" means a great deal to me regardless of whether or not I still enjoy the series.

Thanks to our friends over at Madman Entertainment, us at SnapThirty were given a couple of tickets for the special screening weekend of the film here in Australia. To be able to experience a piece of "Naruto" media entitled "The Last" with some of the people that made the series so popular, the fans, was extremely exciting...unfortunately that may have been the most enjoyable part of this film.

Gotta agree with this review. This movie was not fitting end of this epic series. I mean Naruto going onto the moon? WTF

F-Inglese-94643d ago was a little nuts...

Avoiding reviews as I'm not going to get to see it until it's on the net but really, Naruto has been pretty bad for years now, did anyone really have any hopes that the movie would somehow redeem the series? I'm going in with low expectations with at best hoping it doesn't turn into a power up craptastic thing but honestly wouldn't be surprised if Naruto saves the day with some form of new Rasengan.

I think the idea that it is supposed to be "The Last" Naruto movie makes people think it's going to be the best of them all but it simply wasn't. In short; as it's been said, this is just another Naruto movie. Nothing more, nothing less.

Figures usually the Naruto movies are bad. I"ll still watch this.

F-Inglese-94643d ago

Oh yeah, it's still worth a watch. Just don't expect anything groundbreaking.

Yeah didn't expect anything amazing. Naruto movies are usually mediocre but I kind of had my expectations a bit higher since its canon. Oh well, still going to check it out.
